Welcome to the new website for 12 Metre Challenge

Sint Maarten – 12 Metre Challenge is please to release its new website and real time booking engine.

“Our new website is quite a significant update from its previous rendition,” states Colin Percy, owner of 12 Metre Challenge. “The website is fully responsive, which means that it should look and function equally well on all of today’s viewing platforms – smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops. It also features a state-of-the-art ecommerce gift shop with secure online ordering as well as a real time booking engine using the Starboard Suite booking platform. We are very proud of the end result and hope that our guests and partners appreciate the updated content and functionality.”


Founded by owner and America’s Cup enthusiast, Colin Percy, 12 Metre Challenge operates in Sint Maarten, Netherlands Antilles, and Cozumel, Mexico. It provides both experienced and novice guests with a unique and thrilling opportunity to race some of the most magnificent and famous race yachts in the world.

Designed for speed and maneuverability, 12 Metre Class yacht designs ushered in a new era of America’s Cup racing when the format was introduced in 1958. The fleet operated by 12 Metre Challenge is an unprecedented collection of 1987 vintage boats that represent the pinnacle of the marque.

Each vessel is the result of multi-million dollar R&D programs and years of testing and refinement. They are regarded as some of the fastest 12 Metre Class sailboats in the world, including the beautiful world reknowned Stars and Stripes 87 US-55, which under the brilliant command of Dennis Conner returned the America’s Cup back to the United States from Australia during the 1987 America’s Cup.
